comment Microsoft Word-safe fonts
I'm not sure what Word does for substitute fonts. Adobe has a very clever substitute font that it uses for PDFs, maybe you should convert to PDF.

comment How can I compare percentage of a colour at different points in an image?
If you're willing to do some coding, the question might better be asked on StackOverflow. As you've put it here it's a little vague.

comment How to add a font to the Cmd window choices in Windows 7 64-bit?
@OliverSalzburg, no it's not a raster font - it's TrueType. The article merely explains why the window will be ugly, not why the workaround won't show the font at all.

A Tiff file can contain multiple images. Is it possible that it converted to 4 different images, one for C, M, Y, and K?

@barryhoudini, that works too. I wasn't sure when I answered whether the result should be hours or a time.

comment How to print without yellow toner cartridge in a laser printer
The printer may not be able to print without yellow because of government mandated tracking information added to the page. I believe my Samsung adds yellow even when I specifically configure it for grayscale, because the yellow toner is depleting much faster than cyan or magenta. See seeingyellow.com

@iglvzx is right, but I swear that we wrote our answers independently. I took 2 minutes to test the answer.

comment What are the dangers of having administrator privileges on my Mac?
@DanielBeck, sorry I don't have any direct evidence, I'm not a Mac user. I do know that recent contests to take over a machine have been won by someone attacking OS X. And surely there wouldn't be admin privileges if they weren't protecting something important, would there?

comment What are the dangers of having administrator privileges on my Mac?
Malware makers have finally waken up to the fact that Macs are popular enough to be valid targets. Don't make their job easier.

comment Why does IPv6 use 128 bit addressing?
I'm confused about how physical density would enter into the deliberations - there's nothing about IP addresses that are limited geographically. P.S. Thanks for the XKCD link.

comment Why does IPv6 use 128 bit addressing?
@Dennis, I can't talk to someone who designed IPv6 but it seems the rationale for this decision would be documented somewhere or even be common knowledge for those that work with it. I'm a bit confused by the vote to close.
